(Marlin Scurti from Clinton Township, MI)
Ben Verlander will get talked about because of his name and bloodlines, but he should be talked about because of his skills. He has a chance to bust out a bit if he can take to playing everyday.

A couple of other names worth nothing include Harold Castro, Javier Betancourt, Steven Fuentes and a big one is Joe Jimenez. (Mark Anderson)
